Yoshiyuki Tomino attended the Romics anime and manga event in Rome, Italy on Saturday as a special guest for a screening of Tomino's Gundam: Reconguista in G television anime series. As part of a fan meeting for the screening, Tomino said that a new project for the franchise was in development.
Animator Kazumi Nakatsu had reported on her Twitter account in November that the anime would play in theaters throughout Japan sometime this year. A theatrical film version of the Gundam: Reconguista in G television anime had not been announced previously. Nakatsu's Twitter post has since been deleted.
Gundam: Reconguista in G celebrated the Gundam franchise's 35th anniversary, and marked the first return of franchise creator Yoshiyuki Tomino as chief director of an original Gundam series since Turn A Gundam. After a theatrical premiere of the first three episodes in August 2014, the anime premiered on Japanese television in October 2014.
The Gundam Reconguista in G: From the Past to the Future nine-minute short was then screened at the Gundam Front Tokyo's Wall-G Theater at Diver City Tokyo starting in May 2015.
